After visiting in March, we decided to return in the summer! No matter the season, Blue Moon is a treat! The Sunset cabin was flawless. We enjoyed swimming, the hot tub, the sunsets and the canoes and kayaks. Perfection - looking forward to our return trip already.

We loved our time at Blue moon. The owners thought of everything. There were kids toys/books available for our 2 year old along with a sandbox and play structures. Just a really lovely spot. My only critique being that we were unable to stream. However they had date lot so we found that to be a good substitute. The cabin...

We stayed at the Blue Moon Retreat this past August and though the weather was not the greatest...it rained a lot, the vacation was still amazing. The property is well looked after, both inside and out. They have thought of everything you could possibly need good weather or bad! From the DVDs, games, books to the kayaks, row boat, pedal...

Our first cottage experience together and with our puppy. We stayed a week in the Sunset cottage and the view of Purdy Lake was absolutely phenomenal! The cozy cottage made our stay delightful, especially with the 3 separate patio sliding doors, the indoor hot-tub, the water toys (paddled out and saw the gorgeous Loons) and the unforgettable memories we will...

The Sunset Cottage exceeded our expectations! The indoor hot tub and infrared sauna took it over the top! The cathedral ceilings made the cabin feel even more spacious and the three sets of patio doors, all facing the lake, were spectacular! The property is stunning, even in mid March. We will definitely be back - looking forward to a return...

We stayed at Blue Moon Retreat from March 4th to the 6th in Sunset cottage. It was our first time visiting and our expectations were surpassed. The cottage was super clean, and being a pet friendly resort that was remarkable. It is stocked with all amenities, nothing is left for want. The hot tub and infrared sauna were a treat....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate at our small cottage resort on peaceful Purdy Lake which is located between Bancroft and Barry's Bay on the quieter, southeast side of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Our all-inclusive, 'cut-above', resort has 1,500 feet of frontage on a largely undeveloped lake. A pair of loons nest on the island in the centre and their mournful cries are music for the soul. With just 6 housekeeping cottages on 20 acres you will be sharing this slice of the sparsely populated Canadian Algonquin Highlands with only a few other guests and the local wildlife. Many of our guests come for weekend or mid-week getaways during the even quieter fall, winter and spring seasons. ... more   less
